  • Glycolysis (Cytoplasm)
    • 3) the triose phosphate molecules are now oxidised to pyruvate molecule. The Hydrogens which are lost are collected by NAD to form reducedNAD
    • 4) ATP is now produced. Enzyme controlled reactions convert triose phosphate into pyruvate molecules. In the process 2 molecules of ATP are produces. This is substrate level phosphorylation
    • 1) Glucose is activated by phosphorylation. Two ATP molecules are hydrolysed to ADP therefore releasing two Phosphates.
    • Overall yield:    2 ATP, 2Reduced NAD, 2 Pyruvate
    • Remember glycolysis is anarobic. It can occur in the abscence of oxygen




nice mind map but its is very breif
